Afterparty might look like an adventure game all about snarky commentary and witty banter, but it definitely goes much deeper than that. In an interview with Engadget, Night School co-founder Sean Krankel discusses the sentimental aspects of the game.
"People don't think this has an emotional core to it, but it totally does. The thing we don't talk about in the press that much is that the game is about the nature of friendship. The ups and downs of that, and managing what it is like to be in a long-term relationship with somebody, and how maybe you backstab them and stuff. ...On the surface it's just a fun romp through hell that's very non-linear, and players determine how they get through it, but by the end of it, we hope people get misty."
